Marken Successfully Delivers Lifesaving Apheresis Treatment From The USA to the UK Within 24 Hours
Marken was tasked with performing a next-day collection of temperature-sensitive tumor material from Philadelphia to Manchester, UK for an urgent patient treatment.
The delivery was complicated by a public holiday in the UK, which reduced support and resources. Marken’s London and Philadelphia teams worked closely with the client to secure a same-day flight and implement a customized plan for the transfer of the apheresis kit materials. The shipment arrived under the 24-hour turnaround time and was transported to the manufacturer in time to support the patient treatment.
A flexible mitigation strategy was essential to manage short turnaround during UK public holiday.
